[Serene] Mitski – Francis Forever (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

Francis Forever (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

If you’re still coming down from the massive amount of feelings instilled from Ryan Hemsworth‘s Valentine’s Day mix, prepare for a lot more because he just gave us his beautiful remix of Mitski‘s “Francis Forever” that was featured in it. Ryan applies his textbook cute and futuristic touch to the gentle indie tune, managing to not only tug at the heartstrings, but also expand on his constantly evolving exploration of sound that’s stemmed from his latest album, Alone For The First Time.

Delicate synths flutter alongside the simple yet resounding drum work and percussion as the airy vocals of Mitski shimmer within the fluctuating space. It’s a tune that almost makes time stand still while it plays. As with almost any Ryan Hemsworth song, your mind begins to drift into an innate sense of calm and you find a warm center of solace as the tune progresses. We can count ourselves lucky not just for the stream, but for the free download also, so don’t forget to grab your own copy! Finish off your day right and get a little emotional with Ryan’s new tune above.

60+ Songs to Prepare for Treasure Island Music Festival in SF, 10/18-19 [Event Preview + Playlist]

timf2014-sfweekly-fullpgLineups for major music festivals often boast 100+ artists, which although in theory is a great concept, can end up being overwhelming and frustrating when you realize the impossibility of seeing every act on the bill. San Francisco’s Treasure Island Music Festival, a collaboration between Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment, provides one of the few exceptions to this conundrum electing to go with fewer artists and alternating sets at only two stages. Having attended last year, we found this to be a genius, albeit seemingly obvious, solution making the experience far more relaxed for festival-goers without sacrificing any quality in the music. Aside from the unique arrangement, the backdrop of Treasure Island overlooks both the Bay and Golden Gate bridges and has one of the more stunning sunsets the Bay Area has to offer. For anyone who will be attending this year, we also highly recommend checking out the non-stop Silent Disco stage courtesy Silent Frisco.

To help you all prepare for what should be an amazing weekend of music, we’ve put together a massive playlist including every single artist on the TIMF lineup because, with no overlapping sets, you will actually have the opportunity to see them all. Whether you’ve already got your ticket, are still on the fence or can’t make it this year, we hope this serves as a fun, introduction to a dynamic collection of musicians. One and two-day passes for Treasure Island Music Festival are still available so, if you like what you hear below, grab your tickets HERE.

[Chill] Ryan Hemsworth (Feat. Tinashe) – One For Me (Lucas Remix)

Ryan Hemsworth
One For Me (feat. Tinashe) ~ Lucas Remix

Ryan Hemsworth is one of the most dynamically talented producers in the industry today and he has the catalogue to prove it. Not only has he worked with everyone from Tinashe to The Underachievers, but his own personal discography is incredible as well. If you aren’t convinced this Canadian prodigy can produce any genre under the sun, I urge you to look into his remix EP, RYANPACK Vol 1. His collaboration with Tinashe on “One For Me” was one for the ages and something entirely incredible on its own merit. However, Seattleite Lucas is out to prove that you can take a Hemsworth and make it your own. The first thing you’ll notice is this edit is slowed down, both instrumentally and vocally. This sadboi anthem sounds a lot more instrumental than its predecessor, thanks to Lucas’ own piano work. You need this song in your life, we promise.

[Chill] Quadron – Hey Love (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

Hey Love (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

Over the last couple years, the unique remixes created by Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth have become a mainstay in my music library. On his latest re-work, Hemsworth takes on Quadron‘s hit “Hey Love” providing it a slightly more wavy feel. The song builds slowly for the first minute before drawing the listener into a groove assisted by the chopped vocals of Coco O. 

Enjoy this track above and look out for it on Quadron’s upcoming remix EP. Ryan Hemsworth’s debut album, Guilt Trip, will also be dropping on October 22nd and is sure to be worth a listen.

[Remix] Frank Ocean – Thinkin Bout You (Ryan Hemsworth Bootleg)

Frank Ocean has come a long way, from singing hooks for his fellow Odd Future members to releasing one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the summer, Channel Orange. His stand-out single “Thinkin Bout You” gets an original twist with the help of Halifax producer Ryan Hemsworth. Using the opening strings of the original track, Hemsworth employs a soft laid-back melody, building drum beats and complimentary synths worthy of a video game to create this rhythmic remix. Hemsworth manages to put his own touch on the track without destroying its beauty. This rework will be featured on his upcoming Last Words EP dropping August 21st.
